Iowa defeats Cedar Rapids 31-25

Des Moines, IA – The Iowa Barnstormers (6-2) won its fourth straight game with a 31-25 win over the Cedar Rapids Titans (1-8) Saturday night at the U.S. Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Those would be the only scores of the half for both sides.

Starting the second quarter, the Barnstormer defense kept the Titan offense out of the end zone during its first possession when defensive back DaeJohn Love recovered a fumble on fourth down. Iowa capitalized on the turnover when Partridge found Roland on a 19 yard pass for their third score of the half, 21-0. With 15 seconds left in the half, the Titans answered back when former Barnstormer quarterback Brion Carnes found receiver Tre’ Parmalee for a 13 yard pass on fourth down, 21-7.

In the second half, the Barnstormers defense stuffed the Titans on fourth down at the goal line on Cedar Rapids first drive of the half. Iowa picked up a field goal from kicker Kenton Chun midway through the third quarter, 24-7. The Titans cut the lead when Carnes found receiver Connor Hollenbeck for a six yard score, 24-13. On Cedar Rapid’s first possession of the fourth quarter, Carnes found receiver Franklyn Williamson for a two yard touchdown, 24-19. Iowa extended its lead when Partridge scored a 7 yard rushing touchdown, 31-19. Cedar Rapids cut into the lead when Carnes found Parmalee again this time a 9 yard score, 31-25. The Barnstormer defense saved the game when they stopped the Titans at the goal line four times with under 20 seconds left in the game.
